The electronic lock can be programmed with safety key override. The lock has a time-out period after three incorrect guesses.

LockState LS-52EN Large Digital Wall Safe
In many ways, this wall safe is much like the PS-1522; but whereas the PWS-1522 comes in black, this safe comes in grey-white color. Its dimensions are almost the same as the PWS safe, except it is 2 inches shorter. It is also slightly heavier at 33.6 lbs. Though it has an internal depth of about 3.35 inches, due to the locking mechanism taking up space internally, the effective depth for the middle one-third of the safe is just 1.5 inches. But even with that restriction, there is plenty of space for documents and other valuables, including a handgun.
